The Museum of Flight invites entries for a special juried exhibition at the Museum opening to the public May 30, 2020. The exhibition will be comprised of 35 photographs and displayed in the T.A. Wilson Great Gallery.

This call is open to all photographers.

Theme and Eligibility

The theme of this year’s exhibition is “The Spirit of Flying Home,” and photographs depicting any subject within the theme are eligible. Inspired by the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, and the boundless emotions felt the world over by returning service members and families after the extended global conflict. Photographers are encouraged to submit a broad range of interpretations embodying the theme.

Photographs not suitable for viewing by the general public or a family audience are not eligible. As this call is for authentic photographs of the real world, please do not digitally enhance or alter your photographs beyond the basic corrections to achieve realistic color/grayscale balance, contrast and sharpness.

Photographs chosen for the exhibition must be professional prints, ready to hang. All photos must be framed using black metal frames, and either un-matted, or using a white or off-white matte.


There will be three awards: 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Each of the winners will be featured on the Museum’s website. The first-place winning photograph will be featured on The Museum of Flight’s website and the cover of Aloft magazine, and the photographer will receive a one-year Aviator Membership (family) to the Museum. The second-place winner will be featured in Aloft magazine and receive a one-year Aviator Membership (family). The third-place winner will also be featured in Aloft magazine and receive a one-year Navigator Membership (2 adults).
